A few words from Mary Kenny, Abbotsford's Gardens Heritage Engagement Officer:
I have really enjoyed developing and delivering this practical and creative project. Working with all the participants, volunteers and staff members of the Trust and partnership organisations has been a pleasure. I love being outdoors, so sharing and exploring the natural beauties of Abbotsford’s gardens and estates with so many folk has been a joy.
All groups visited the house as an introduction to the man, his life and works using activities in the gardens and estate to delve further into his passions for the outdoors.
Employability And Skills
A key aim of the Learning in a Heritage Lanscape - Transforming Work project was to help members of the community develop key life skills and improve their employability.
Health And Wellbeing
Every activity undertaken by participants had either a direct or indirect link to health and wellbeing - largely due to them taking place in the outdoors
